Sark and Manuel were the problem, your apologies are accepted. 

:ninja:

I’ll go ahead and say it. I was a total ******* for arguing with you in the Smitty vs Quinn thread a couple of months back.  I was a dumb **** for sure.

I’d hire Manuel back as my DB coach in a heart beat.

I’d try and coax Jim Schwartz or Kris Richard away from there respective teams.

Sark no but I’d be scouring the league for a competent OC though.

As far as I’m concerned DK MM & GK can  all be put in the archives because that’s where there play calling belongs.

DQ sorry my man you got us there but when your mantra is putting players in positions to succeed and preach finishing sorry bruh your history.

They were scapegoated for sure. Sark did mostly well in year 2. Still had his moments, but overall he was good.

Manuel on the other hand? He was never the answer. I was glad to see him go.

Manuel ran what his boss Quinn told him to run.

Which was my point...

idk man...is it Freeman or his line? :ninja:

Players and/or coaches. There are many scenarios of blame. Is it both? Is it players? Is it coaches?

I want the biggest apologies for the ST coach Keith Armstrong. The defense under MM was no different and Sark wouldnt have made much difference this year. But boy, ST has fallen off the cliff.

Manuel still called his own plays and we rushed 3 often. Idk...we seem to be blitzing more this year.

Oliver is just actually worse than Alford this year...guys are missing basic assignments.

Rico says guys aren't doing their job...

I don't care for his former boss either...

Strongly disagree. And how’s that (blitzing more) working for us?

Also, Rico wouldn’t even have a job if not for MM. Quinn got the credit, it was Manuel who turned him into a safety. 

And Oliver would be a lot further along if MM were still here.

The whole defense would be further along if not for whatever Quinn decided to do this summer.

Manuel was a good coach, albeit his inexperience showed he was a little over his head as a DC when all the injuries occurred. 

But Quinn is who forced duke Riley down his throat....

Just because Manuel and Sark are better coordinators than Quinn and Koetter, doesn't mean they are great coordinators.  All 4 suck.

Maybe on the DB side.

Didn't say MM wasn't a scapegoat, but the D did have trouble and DQ took over for a reason. :shrug:

DBs isn't what I argued. I said MM sat back and didn't attack with his playcalling.

You said DQ called the plays last year but should've said it was DQ's system.

Goalpost on the DBs isn't what I posted about. Just sayin'...

Eh, not really. Riley was a bad pick but Vic Beasley played LB in 2017 because of the Duke miss.

And, Riley never sees the field LAST year if not for the Debo injury.

C'mon. Injuries caused Duke to see the field not DQ.

We're still playing a basic defense.

We came out in Nickel today. They ran on us playing 3 Wide, too.

That's still 2018 repeat not a scheme issue per say.

Maybe DQ will indeed take the fall in the end so what's the point if DQ or Marquand couldn't get the performance the last 2 years? Marquand had more excuses with injuries than Dan? Okay so why isn't Marquand coaching anywhere? He was a DQ made coordinator either way.

My point always was Any D would have had those problems losing the players we lost.  Manuel played the hand he was dealt, which was running Dan quinn’s Passive defense with inadequate backups. We had a huge depth problem defensively last year.

quinn doesn’t have that excuse. He lost Neal, who was playing like crap even before his injury, and that’s it. Everyone else is there, he’s just not getting it done.

Red zone killed him and lack of a running game,much like these idiots still asking Free & Ito to run between the tackles and leave there pound it out RBs on the bench.Madness

Mind you he’s more creative than what we got now.

Why aren't these players getting it? What's missing? They're all professionals. They should be better than this. Quinn m ay very well leave here and be successful elsewhere.
